You guys…I have a problem. I am obsessed with my Frozen Chocolate Cheesecake Bites!! I know they’re good because Keith likes them.
Me: “Babe, try this, I promise it’s amazing”
Keith: “Is that one of your healthy things?”
Me: “Just eat it”
Keith: “Wow, that’s really good!”
I KNOW it’s good Keith, I know.
Well, the other night I was in the mood to bake. When I expressed this urge the boy QUICKLY volunteered that cookies would be a fantastic choice. Since I love the guy so much, I made him cookies full of butter, white flour, refined sugar, and semi sweet chocolate chips.
…The things we do for the ones we love.
Anyway, this morning, I went into the freezer to enjoy one of my Frozen Chocolate Cheesecake bites. As I rummaged through the freezer discovered something terrible. THERE WAS ONLY ONE LEFT!!! I instantly took out my Vitamix, and prepared to make another batch. UGH, I had used the rest of my cocoa powder the day before. I could not win.
I was stuck in a corner. What could I do???
Then I remembered the Cookies from the night before and thought…”Frozen Cookie Dough Bites.”
YES… FROZEN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH BITES.
(Makes six servings, or double the recipe and fill an entire 12 square ice tray)
- 1/3 cup white beans (I used navy beans, chic peas work too!)
- 1 TBS nut butter of choice (I used Sunflower Seed Butter)
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1-2 packets stevia
- 1 dove dark chocolate square (or one tbs chocolate chips)
- dash of salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 TBS coconut flour (any flour will work, or protein powder too)
Blend all ingredients EXCEPT CHOCOLATE SQUARE together in a blender until smooth. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Using cooking scissors, cut chocolate square into flakes and mix into batter. Next spoon batter into an ice tray (into 6 separate squares, or 12 if you have doubled the recipe). Freeze for at least three hours, and then.. ENJOY!!!!
So, Happy SATURDAY!!!! Hope you enjoy your weekend! It will be even better if you make these Frozen Cookie Dough Bites…I PROMISE!
